Platinum 950‰, Ruthenium based, alloy powder developed specifically for additive manufacturing processes

Platinum is notoriously a complex metal to work with using traditional technologies for several reasons. First, it melts at very high temperatures (around 1900°C), requiring special and more expensive tools compared to standard crucibles and stoppers. Additionally, when worked with tools, it poorly dissipates heat, causing rapid deterioration of standard tools. This forces manufacturers to use more durable but also more expensive tools, significantly increasing processing costs.

The introduction of 3D Metal Binder Jet technology to the world of jewelry and high-end watchmaking has revolutionized the processing of platinum, overcoming many challenges associated with its fabrication. Unlike traditional manufacturing techniques, 3D printing technology does not require physical manipulation of the metal, eliminating common difficulties associated with its processing and allowing for the direct creation of complex platinum designs that would otherwise be impossible or prohibitively expensive to produce using conventional methods.

Benefits of 3D Printing in Platinum
  • Rapid prototyping
  • Production of parts with complex geometries
  • Reduction of material waste and associated costs
  • Printing of parts with multiple functions in a single object, reducing the need for assembly
  • Cost savings for producing complex parts or low volumes
  • Sustainability through the use of recyclable materials
